General Discussion / Re: Is it just me, or is everyone upgrading to vans?
« Last post by SEADOO on Yesterday at 11:35:15 PM »
Gee I don’t know if I could buy a new van or one made in the last 5 years if you have a look at Lemon Caravans on Facebook.It is scary what you could end up being stuck with.
Wow there are some sickening stories on there. I would love a van but will stick with my hard floor camper for now I think.

I'm in the same boat mate. We would love to upgrade to a off road Jayco (can't  afford anything else) but I'm afraid of getting a POS.

At least with our current camper, 2015 Lifestyle Elite Walkthrough, it's built like a brick out house and the canvas will last a life time if looked after. I could sell the camper tomorrow for nothing and purchase a 10 yo Jayco, but I just can't bring myself to give away a perfectly good camper to purchase something unknown.

If we were in the position to afford to loose so much on the current camper and drop $40k on something new, we would tomorrow, but I'm not in that position.

Nothings changed out there in the last thirty years then. I remember when they were flogging those off in late night tv infomercials in Sydney. I always thought the selling technique was pretty unscrupulous at the time.

Sounds like what an old boss I had used to refer too as no takers acres.

Surprised Coffs Tourism have an active site with what little they to advertise the area.
So do I. When you see myclarence and the manning -- Coffs should be ashamed. Pretty poor effort. They wanted me to do a host of work for them last year but after 3 months they still couldn’t tell me exactly what they wanted and it got too hard with the legalities and insurance. So I pulled the pin and they still haven’t done anything for 11 months

The 2017 news thread is locked, but most of the comments at the time this tragedy happened where correct.

http://www.myswag.org/index.php?topic=50895.msg886803#msg886803

Yes he was off his head on Meth.
And now we can say yes he intended to murder people on the highway that night.

“Shaun Troy Southern, 46, killed Jennifer Pratt when he drove into her car on the dual-carriageway Bussell Highway near the town of Capel in WA's South West on February 18, 2017.

Southern did not know Ms Pratt or her passenger, Karen Williams, who was injured in the accident.

After about two hours of deliberating, the jury found him guilty of murder and guilty of attempting to unlawfully kill Ms Williams.

Southern showed no reaction when the verdicts were read out.

.....

The trial was told Southern had a $400 a day methylamphetamine habit and had been using the drug for the past five years.

A toxicologist testified he had meth in his system at the time of the crash and was probably intoxicated.

Footage filmed by bystanders and played to the court showed Southern driving down the highway at speed and deliberately swerving into the paths of oncoming vehicles.

The state argued that Southern had the intention to kill whoever was in that vehicle Ms Pratt's vehicle at the time.

Southern's defence conceded the then 45-year-old was "off his head" on the day in question, but did not intend to kill anyone.”

thanks bud,
I have been battling with tourism site for months now- so on monday i went straight to the web designers here in Coffs, took in all the info - colour print outs of the pic on their site, printout of the pic on my blog and in iPhoto ( with date and location ) and the magazine article that it was in last year. I explained what was going on, they totally understood and took it down that night which i was grateful for. Talks between us three the past two days- and finally a nice sum in my bank today. have to have a win now and again  ;D
Beers for all !!!

There’s a heap of 30-40 acre blocks at Tara for less than 50k if you’ve got any interest in that? Just don’t leave anything behind between trips or it won’t be there when you get back... blockies are “resourceful” people  ;)
